This method sets out the procedures for preparation of specimens and measurement of the change of indirect tensile strength resulting from the effects of saturation and accelerated moisture conditioning. The additional effect of freeze/thaw on conditioning of samples is optional. The results can be used to assess the propensity for stripping of dense graded bituminous mixes.
